Refashioned Dress Shirt One Seam Blouse

I made this blouse last year, took pictures, and then completely forgot to share it! This is my first draft of a new pattern, my one seam blouse, I drafted up with my sloper. I was playing around making a top with only one seam cut on the fold at center back. Below you’ll see a graphic which shows how I drafted this design. Easy to recreate if …

Rayon Quartz Dobby Skirt- Vogue Designer Original 2129

Today I’m sharing what once was a Belinda Bellville dress and is now a much more wearable-and comfortable- elastic waist skirt. I love vintage patterns and lucked out finding this Vogue Designer Original Belinda Bellville design very close to my size, in a 16. I love this so much now that it’s been refashioned! And I really like the combo I’m wearing in the images here. This is …

I’m back again today with my newest version 2.0 of my Swiss Dot Blouse. If you missed my last post go back to see the original version of this blouse! I love this blouse with this new flounce sleeve.

Halloween Sewing 2019- The Addams Family

I’m sew excited to share these Halloween makes! I lucked out this year- As soon as Ami saw the previews of the new Addams Family animated movie she was all in for us dressing up as the family. Now my son at 11 took a bit more convincing, but in the end he hopped on board. I adore Halloween. Not the scary stuff so much but the dressing …

Blush Silk Tank Refashion

I can’t believe I haven’t shared this refashion yet! I made this tank well over a year ago and then forgot about it completely. I don’t think I even wore it until now. Hard to believe this was once a double layer silk tank and a pair of capri pants. Both were on clearance at Club Monaco (where I used to work). I scooped up the way too …

Deer & Doe Centaurée Dress

Last month at our ASG meeting my friend Judy gave me a bunch of fabric from her stash to have fun with. Included in the batch were these beautiful floral upholstery sample squares. I went through my patterns to see what I could make that had smaller pieces. The pieced bodice of the Centaurée dress was a perfect match. A sweet little sundress to get me through the …
